More and more people move to cities and urbanised areas; in 20 years time 70% of the world population will be living in cities or metro- poles. But the question how we adjust our eco- systems accordingly, has not been answered yet. In other words: how do we provide all these people with sufficient, healthy and sustainable food? To answer such questions, we need professionals who have the right knowledge to make food systems healthier and more sustainable. That is why Aeres University of Applied Science is launching its master’s programme of Urban Food Systems next academic year, a 1-year programme centred around topics such as circular economy, ecology and health.
If you take a keen interest in urban food systems and want to know where today’s food comes from, what changes are required to make systems healthier and more sustainable, and what role you can play in this development, then the master’s programme of Urban Food Systems is the perfect extension to your bachelor’s programme.
